Rahm Withdraws from US Open with Foot injury

Two-time major champion Jon Rahm has withdrawn from the 124th US Open due to a foot injury.

Rahm withdrew from the LIV Golf League event in Houston during Saturday's second round because of an infection in his left foot, then arrived for his pre-tournament press conference at Pinehurst No 2 wearing one shoe and one flip-flop.

The Spaniard said on Tuesday he was unsure if he would compete to the injury, which he admitted was a "concern", then confirmed later that evening he had withdrawn from this week's major.

In a statement released on his social media, Rahm said: "After consulting with numerous doctors and my team, I have decided it is best for my long term health, to withdraw from this week's US Open Championship.

"To say I'm disappointed is a massive understatement! I wish all my peers the best of luck and want to thank all of the USGA staff, volunteers and community of Pinehurst for hosting and putting on what I'm sure will be an amazing championship! Hopefully I'll be back in action sooner than later!"
